Mætr fekk orðstír ýta
álmrjóðandi góðan;
ítr kunni blik brjóta
Brandr glymfjǫturs landa;
lítt unni sá sleitum
seims hyrbroti geima;
opt gefna lét jafnan
oddrjóðr vinum hodda.

Vell gaf varga fyllir
vingóðr kyni þjóðar;
veitti auð sás átti
oddrógs boði gnógan;
blíðr var ǫrr af auði
oddstiklandi miklum;
þær lifa víst er váru
vinsæls skǫrungs minjar.

Hreggsulli tók halla,
hné ferð í dyn sverða,
skǫglar fúrs á skýra
Skagfirðinga stirðum;
hvíts hefr hundrað látizk
hjaldrlands í styr manna,
(trautt má tal þats hittum)
tírætt (ór því fættask).

Skiptu skǫp sem optar,
skǫrungr fell í dyn hjǫrva
œztr með orðstír beztan,
ósvífr fira lífi;
fár má fleina skúrar
frægr aldrlagi bægja
seiðs né sínum dauða
svipskorðandi forða.

Élgrundar, bjarg ǫndu,
æztr þjóðkonungr, mæztri
(góðs samir buðlung beiða)
Brands (við fjǫrnis landa);
hvíld fær ǫðlingr aldar
alvíss paradísar,
prútt sás píslum léttir,
Páls bróður, frið, sôlu.

Mildr réð skemr en skyldi
skjaldreyrs hǫtuðr aldri;
þrymkennis tók þannig
þungr harmr sonu unga;
viggs megu varla hyggja
veðrtams svana beðjar
áms bliknjótar ítrir
auðmilds skǫrungs dauða.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
